The jobs market can be difficult, even in the games industry. It takes time to find the right role and company that suits you, and with the way the world is currently, it’s even more difficult. Despite a strong 2020 for the games industry generally, many companies have faced difficult decisions to lay off staff, and jobseekers have had networking opportunities limited.
In order to support jobseekers during this time, we added a ‘careers fair’ component to our events in 2020 - and we are proud to say we’re hosting another Pocket Gamer Connects Careers Week during Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #6 in the week of April 19th to 23rd.
And the best bit is that jobseekers can attend free!
What can you expect from the Careers Week?
- A digital jobs board listing on the main event channel
- A mail-out of key vacancies to all attendees
- A daily ‘recruitment hour’ in the Discord channel where recruiters and job-seekers can gather
- A virtual jobs fair (match-making event where we connect job seekers with recruiters)
- Focused ‘recruitment’ talks, panels and roundtables
- Supporting editorial coverage on PocketGamer.biz
How can I get involved?
1) Jobseekers join us for free!
We are making a number of jobseeker tickets available free to people currently out of work due to the current climate and looking for a new role.
